The foundation

In Switzerland, more than one in five people are diagnosed with cancer before the age of 70. The number of recoveries is increasing, and further improvement of the cure rates can be expected thanks to the many advances in oncological research and the ensuing clinical applications.

The ISREC Foundation applies its means to concretizing this objective, hoping to contribute to the development of new therapies in the near future.

The ISREC Foundation has actively supported experimental cancer research for more than half a century.
